bf-109 G2 (Again)

Helo Guys!
I works on my new Bf-109. I will make a fiberglass fuse and balsa covered foam wings. I like M.J. and Neons style so much. I'm not as good in sanding as Mr Morgan so I cheated. I made a former ribs from 1.5 mills ply wood and i fitted them on tube. The distance between each ribs is filled up wit insulation foam. When i touched the ply i knew i do not have much to sand of so the job done. (Big thanks to Fokke for this way!)

That is a very nice looking Gustav so far! I have always like the G model. It just seems more warlike and aggressive. I also like your workshop. It's huge!

The wing span 61" like Brian Taylor's one. I can't find scale spinner in simylar size . I worked with his spinner before and I love the shape of it.!!

Hi Guys! I'm always looking for the easyest ways to make a nicer and more acurate shape. At the moment this one looks the most like bf-109.Unfortunately the previous few are not too nice for my eyes. If my memory is ok this is my 6th 109. The 3rd in this size. The previous one is waiting for better weather to make a the 2474th maiden. I leart plenty from her crashes and I'm pretty confident with this one and if you don't mind I will put some pics on when I made some progress.
